BHS To Host IB Programme Information Evening

October 7, 2015

BHS will host an information evening on Thursday [Oct 8] from 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m. for anyone who is interested in learning more about the IB programme at BHS. The IB programme at BHS accepts young men and women.

The school said, “The IB Diploma Programme is designed as an academically challenging and balanced programme of education with final examinations that prepares students, usually aged 16 to 19, for success at university and life beyond.

“The programme is usually taught over two years and has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities. Every year, BHS students exceed the worldwide average and they have unparalleled support to get into their top university choices like Georgetown, McGill and Durham.

“Housed in its own centre, the IB at BHS is a “school inside a school” and students are given more independence than at high school. Small class sizes allow students to be better supported and gain deeper knowledge. BHS is a Round Square school and fosters open-mindedness, diversity, compassion, service and internationalism.

“IB Diploma Programme students study six courses at higher level or standard level ensuring a breadth of experience in languages, social studies, the experimental sciences, mathematics and the arts. In addition, the programme has three core requirements that are included to broaden the educational experience and challenge students to apply their knowledge and understanding.

“The extended essay is a requirement for students to engage in independent research through an in-depth study of a question relating to one of the subjects they are studying.

“Theory of knowledge is a course designed to encourage each student to reflect on the nature of knowledge by critically examining different ways of knowing [perception, emotion, language and reason] and different kinds of knowledge [scientific, artistic, mathematical and historical].

“Creativity, activity, service [CAS] requires that students actively learn from the experience of doing real tasks beyond the classroom. Students can combine all three components or do activities related to each one of them separately.

“Parents and interested students can come and meet current teachers, the IB Coordinator and have all their questions answered.

“This information evening be held in the Queen Elizabeth Hall at BHS, and parking will be available on the BHS field. Please use the Richmond Road entrance.”
